I started Collarado as a way to continue spending time around animals and get to know more Coloradans. I have always loved animals since I was a little boy going to the Baltimore Zoo to see the prairie dogs. As I've grown up, I've come to love many many dogs whom you see all over the website. I hope to meet your dog and bring them into the Collarado family!

Prior to Collarado, I worked at The Wild Animal Sanctuary in Keenesburg, CO. If you haven't been, go. TWAS takes care of about 450 lions, tigers, bears, wolves, and other beautiful animals. They come rescued from very unfortunate circumstances to live the rest of their lives in significantly better conditions. 

Before moving to Denver, I worked at a barn back in Michigan taking care of 30 horses. And even before that I went down to Costa Rica after graduating from college to work on sea turtle conservation projects. So you can see I have been around all kinds of animals and have loved it!


Collarado Canine Care strives to provide superior pet care at a great value to our customers. If there is something we do not offer, but you are interested in please let us know!

If you have friends or family that do not have pets, but still would like a little help around the house we offer cooking, cleaning, and other services.
